Deeper than this satin scrim of sky,
darker even than this moonless night
it’s here in this shroud of lacking light
that yearning for yearly burst will bloom;
princess, please grace us with your presence.
Beauty and radiance leaves too soon,
golden rays of sun will be your plight,
then that you’ll be pilfered from our sight;
flower fully for morning draws nigh.

So, I’m pretty stoked right now! I made up my first form ever today!!
I titled it “Infinity Plus One,” because it is nine lines with nine syllables each
and so 9×9=81. I have eight representing the symbol for “infinity” and stated the extra one as “plus one.”
Infinity Plus One: Nine lines with nine syllables per line and a rhyme scheme of abbcdcbba.
A variation of this form:
In addition to the original form and to play up
the idea of the “plus one,” part of the title
you could extend this form adding additional
nine line/nine syllable stanzas
with the same rhyme scheme,
if it so pleases your poetical hearts! :)
As an after…after thought,
I’m thinking if any of you
precious poetic peeps do try this form
feel free to link it to this post on your blogs
and also to share your links with me,
I’d be thrilled to read your poems!
Maybe one day I’ll host a
“Infinity Plus One,” prompt
with a Mr. Linky and everything!
